Stunning images of the Nordic islands from one of Europe’s most renowned nature photographers
Compiled over 14 years and more than 80 trips by air, on water, and on land to Norway, Iceland, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands
With thrilling making-of and behind-the-scenes texts
One of the most renowned nature photographers in Europe, Stefan Forster, documents the extraordinary Nordic islands. Over the course of more than 80 intrepid trips through Greenland, Iceland, Norway, and the Faroe Islands, Forster captures the epic land-scapes, wildlife, and beauty of these far-flung isles.
Forster’s journey saw him walking hundreds of kilo-meters through the Highlands of Iceland, paddling a kayak along the west coast of Greenland, sailing on an old wooden ship through the mighty Scoresby Sound of East Greenland, and scaling one of the steepest cliffs on the Faroe Islands. His photographs capture not only these extraordinary landscapes, but also their native inhabitants: young polar foxes, musk ox families, sea eagles, and puffins. The result is a fascinating photo-graphic portrait of some of the most remote and ruggedly beautiful places on earth.
Stefan Forster, born in 1986 in Switzerland, has been working as a landscape and wildlife photographer for the last 14 years. Since 2013, Forster also works as a drone pilot and cameraman for well-known international TV stations.
